  • I could be daydreaming but for a moment
    And somehow they're creeping back in
    I could be sleeping awakened the torrent
    Somehow I get caught in their grips again

    And here I am in my shame spiral
    I'm sucked in to it again
    And I reach out for your benevolent opinion
    And you bring the light back in, oh

    Don't leave me here with all these critical voices
    Cause they do their best to bring me down, bring me down
    When I'm alone with all these negative voices
    I will need your help to turn them down, turn them round

    I could be listening to waken the season
    The story I'm not even in
    These voices have their way when I am unguarded
    Suddenly I step in quicksand again

    Once again in my shame spiral
    I am glad that you've weighed in, oh

    Don't leave me here with all these critical voices
    Cause they do their best to bring me down
    When I'm alone with all these negative voices
    I will need your help to turn them down, turn them round

    All these judgements, so incisive
    Voices left to their devices
    This moments narrate is a desperate plea
    For slack to be cut to me
    Cut to me, oh

    Don't leave me here with all these critical voices
    'Cause they do their best to bring me down, bring me down
    When I'm alone with all these negative voices
    I will need your help to turn them down, turn them round
    Turn them round, turn them round
